Italian Butcher Arrested for Selling Decade-Old Meat

(NewsCore) - Italian police arrested a Naples butcher after discovering worm-infested meat for sale in his store that was 10 years past its expiry date, the ANSA news agency reported Friday.

Shocked food safety inspectors discovered pasta and biscuits crawling with parasites, rotting meats and dairy products, and olives covered in mold in the store of horrors.

The butcher tampered with expiry dates on the products in order to keep on selling the items, even though some were a decade old, the report said.

Police arrested the butcher on suspicion of endangering public health.

Gross is right! You have to wonder if he ever had any repeat business?

That kind of stuff happens all the time in Manhattan grocery stores. Maybe not 10 years, but a bunch of stores here have the expiration date tampering scam down to a science.

What year was it? Because 2000 was a good vintage for meat (not so much 2001.)

I have a question - when do you also hold people accountable for being stupid? That “butcher” must have customers. How can one mistake very old meat with worms (I assume maggots) and a smell that I can only imagine... for edible product?

ugh. Food Lion. We bought some meat patties there once only to find out after we ate them that they were a year post their expiration date. I had bad dreams about expired food after that.

Eeeeww.....

I lived in the Naples area for three years when I was growing up.

Mom bought our meat at the Commissary, though.

At one of the stores, they used bleach to remove the ink on the expiration dates on the chicken packages. Then they’ll write in a different expiration date by hand in pen. I’m not joking.

I think the administration is trying to get people to eat insects as snacks. The Obongos have a thing for the third world.

This is worse that meat and chickens hanging outside in Mexican markets with flies all over it, or maybe not.

I wonder how many of his customers he killed?

"At one of the stores, they used bleach to remove the ink on the expiration dates on the chicken packages."

Yep, Food Lion is something else. My wife and I called them "The Experience", because whenever one of us got back home from shopping there, we would say "You won't believe the experience I just had at Food Lion". Their green bacon was quite a sight.

The law of supply and demand caught up with them locally. We have a nice supply of decent grocery stores, so the populace demanded that Food Lion take a hike.

In the Air Force I once considered putting in an official complaint that the meat in the bag lunch ( SAC Nasties ) sandwiches wasn't uniformly green.

My local upscale supermarket has a section where they dump deeply discounted meat for quick sale. I call it the Green Meat Section.

If he had customers the meat wouldn’t have set there ten years, o.k., maybe it was on the bootom of the rack.

Sheesh folks. Don’t any of you talk to the people that work in your local Food Lion? Like the butcher or the manager?

While I’ll be the first to agree Food Lion is not exactly a “high end” supermarket, I can’t believe I shop in the only decent one with a butcher and manager who don’t do crapola like you describe.
